TUESDAY 26 SEPTEMBER 2023
6:00pm - 8:00pm
The CSA, together with the University of Sydney Law School, is delighted to welcome global Copyright Law authorities, Professor Jane C. Ginsburg (Columbia University Law School and Percy Spender Fellow, University of Sydney Law School) and The Hon. Justice Nye Perram (Federal Court of Australia).
Professor Ginsburg and Justice Perram will address the impact of recent cases concerning transformative uses of copyright protected material, including the Supreme Court of the United States decisions in ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION FOR THE VISUAL ARTS, INC. v. GOLDSMITH ET AL and GOOGLE LLC v. ORACLE AMERICA, INC.
In its 2023 finding against the Andy Warhol Foundation, the US Supreme Court shifted the consideration away from the artistic contribution of the new work, and focused instead on the commercial implications of the copying, as required by the fourth factor of the Fair Use defence under §107 of the US Copyright Act.
Commentators have suggested the decision “will significantly limit the amount of borrowing from and building on previous works that artists can engage in.”
This special event will explore the limits of transformative uses of copyright works in Australia and international jurisdictions.
All interested copyright and creative industries professionals welcome.
